Can we use these projects?

After we've built these projects using our own text editors, even following along with the video, can we still use these in portfolios, or does that count as plagiarism?

For context: I'm really excited after building the To-Do list making app along with the videos, and I plan on styling it myself to get some CSS practice in...but I'm not certain if I could build it again all by myself right away.

I imagine as long as you are not using any resources (images, video, packages, etc) that TreeHouse or another party own, any code that you create is yours to keep and do as you please with.

The code from most of these courses is so basic that they would be tough to nail you for any copyright infringement.

Additionally (I may need backup from a TreeHouse rep), this site is geared towards people learning and pursuing a career in programming, and probably wants you to use whatever you create in the outside world.
